I found this little blue and white rose candle holder and the dresser set for a 1.00 each at yard sales this weekend. I have alot more yard sale stuff to share, but will share it at another post.
This is a picture of the markings on the plates below.
I found these plates at Goodwill. They are Johnson brothers made in England. I paid 5.95. I thought that was a reasonable price for Johnson brother plates. There were three of them.
I paid way too much for these two little rose saucers. I found them at Goodwill for 3.93. But to me they were worth it, because I have a whole set of these and can always use extra pieces. My mother in law bought the set for a wedding present many many years ago.
This little teacup was 1.91 at Goodwill.

I bought all these items for .25 cents. The little red cardinal basket is a Lefton china piece.

  9. Hi Susan... wanted to stop by and thank you for your lovely comment on my lamps...was nice of you to visit...
    Looking at your GW finds, not bad at all! Especially the match to your china! The GW near me is always picked clean when I get there but we do have wonderful Garage Sales every Saturday! So many people come and go in my area... they come for 4 months then sell everything when they leave...or some just toss it and I'm one to dumpster dive..lol
    Thanks again..
